The hotel seems to be a renovated block of row houses connected together, and they did a nice job. The rooms are very comfortable, and while the view is nothing to rave about (looks out over I-95), they are extremely quiet... you don't hear street or highway noise at all.
They have a nice exercise room, and most rooms have a little refrigerator, coffee maker, etc. The internet is also free ... a good thing, nothing drives you more nuts than paying $300+ for a room and getting nickeled and dimed for the internet... kudos to Delamar for making that free.
Everyone is helpful, but they just don't have the polish and rhythym needed to give a 5 star experience. Things just seem a bit awkward... it just doesn't flow like a matured 5 star hotel. For example.. nice exercise room, but they hadn't restocked the towels and water (someone came up at one point and finally did it). Called about a plumbing issue, and they forgot we called and had to call again, at which point they fixed it no problem.
The restaurant has opened and we had breakfast there... the food was very good, prices reasonable, but again missing the cooridination (brought the wrong tables food to our table, for instance... confused about which of the multiple servers took order, etc).
So... very nice staff, very nice hotel, very good food... they just need to get the coordination down if they want to make that last star!
